Being burnt out at work can have serious negative effects on your mental and physical health. Here are some healthy steps to avoid burnout:
Make sure to set aside time for activities that you enjoy and that help you to relax and recharge. This could include hobbies, exercise, spending time with loved ones, or practising mindfulness and meditation.
Establish clear boundaries between your work and personal life. Avoid checking work emails or taking work calls during your time off and set realistic expectations for your workload and availability.
If possible, delegate tasks that you find particularly stressful or time-consuming. This can help to lighten your workload and prevent feelings of overwhelm.
Take regular breaks:
It’s important to take regular breaks throughout the day. Step away from your desk, go for a short walk, or engage in a brief relaxation exercise. These breaks can help to improve focus and productivity.
Manage your workload:
Learn to prioritize tasks and manage your time effectively. Break larger tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks and set realistic deadlines for yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or communicate any concerns about your workload to your supervisor.
Practice stress management techniques:
Incorporate stress management techniques into your routine, such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, or journaling. Find what works best for you in relieving stress and make it a regular practice.

Don’t hesitate to reach out for support from colleagues, friends, or family members. Sometimes, talking about your feelings with someone who understands can provide the emotional support and perspective you need.
Remember, it’s essential to listen to your body and mind and take action if you notice signs of burnout.
